stent removing snare
The new stent removing snare is designed to streamline indwelling ureteral stent removal in the office, with new access, increased convenience and minimal anesthesia. The design’s goal is ease of use and minimizing set-up time and patient discomfort by eliminating the cystoscopy. The 18 F snare is designed to work best in the male urethra. The snare should not be advanced beyond the bulbous urethra. The snare is also available in a smaller size 16 F, which works better removing a stent from the female bladder, as it may require more manipulation.
